Is it possible to automate an action from selected text in a Teams chat?

Hello!

 

Is there any trigger for text selected in a Teams chat?

I'd like to be able to automate grabbing the selected text and tacking it onto a URL to access a record.

 

e.g.

Suppose a chat message mentions a part number, and you select it ...

Then right-click and select an action that uses the selected text for a web-based lookup (i.e. acme.com/parts/lookup?pn=KZ4376)

 

This would be a great shortcut, instead of painstakingly copying the selected text to the clipboard, switching to the browser, and pasting it into the search input on the particular site.

 

Thanks for any advice.

 

Wayne
